Few things you might do to help, one is clean your throttle body and the IAC. Secondly replace the PCV valve and if their is a breather filter replace that also. Then just do a seafoam oil treatment, I like to do one once in a while just to keep the galley in the crankshaft clean and keep the pump clean. Just get some seamfoam and put about 4 Oz in the oil maybe 250 miles before your next oil change.
Most likely just cleaning the TB will do it, but I do notice on many cars and trucks even those not chrysler if you have a oil clogged PCV then it will mess the idle a little because of the vacuum.
